Look at your watch. If you have a timer, set it for 20 minutes. Use computer or pen and paper, but write for 20 minutes on whatever this strange trigger brings to mind. It is from a poem by Theodore Roethke.
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow, /I feel my fate in what I cannot fear./ I learn by going where I have to go.
When your 20 minutes are up, no editing allowed. Email your writing exercise to me at ggvan1at gmaildot com. We may choose a couple to study next week so we can see a variety of response.
